Does CT mean anything in an editorial context? A slashdot article summary is as follows:

For some time now, rumors have been floating around that Sony was working on a concept for a mobile phone that also serves as a bona fide portable games console... For Sony buffs, you'll be interested to know that there's no Memory Stick slot here, but there is support for microSD cards." CT: Which would all be well and good if it was real.

I feel like the last sentence was tacked on after the article was already published. Is it just the initials of an editor or something else?

It seems like the initials of the editor.

You're right - Slashdot's editor's handle is "Commander Taco", or CT. – mskfisher Oct 27 '10 at 15:00
